The Bad Guy

“Jesus is like a Mountie…

…He always gets his man.  And he’ll zap you anyway he can.”

Sure, you’ll get a giggle out of this, but there’s more to this video than meets the eye.  This is a Christian band playing Christian ska in the 80’s, dressed like the warm-up act for the Partridge family or Lawrence Welk Show regulars.  Make no mistake, SONSEED were originals, VERY brave, and I tip my hat to them.

Sure, there’s the issue of some unfortunate lyrical choices, but I’m not going to quibble with that.  What is important is that they dressed how they wanted and played the music they wanted to.  Hell, look at the guitar player, he looks like he’s enjoying himself!  Good for him.  And as far as reverse-engineering a musical genre to fit your religious beliefs, SONSEED kick Stryper’s sorry buttocks from here to the end of days.

  1. Hmmm fair points well made and well illustrated. But… now I have pulled myself together a little… where the hell do you find these classics?

    Thanks for making me smile, and glad to see you back to it here.
